Giddy Up Cowgirl

What a great theme this week on Theme Thursday. Go check out all of the creative entries. I started with an image from the New York Public Library online. It is a great site for vintage photos and advertisements. The background consists of distressed ink and a new stamp from Michaels. I added a small tag with a copper star. I used stickers for the lettering. Lastly I added a little ribbon and scratched up the cowgirl image with sandpaper. Creating this challenge was a nice get away from the winter weather happening outside. My area in Northern Indiana is expected to get 4 or more inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. Time to break out the snow boots or maybe the Christmas decoration.

Oh Christmas Tags!

Christmas time is just around the corner. I can't believe it is already past the middle of November. All of the retail stores are decked out for Christmas. I am ready to put away the fall decor and dig out my Christmas decorations. This year has flown by. The Christmas tags are doing double duty this week. Both Tag You're It & Mixed Media Monday have a Christmas theme. These tags could be used as ornaments to hang on your tree or as gift tags. I have finally got back in the groove of blogging and hope I can keep it up. Thanks to all who stop by. Enjoy!

Coffee Time

Finally, I have had a little time to creat and blog. Funny enough the them for Tag Your'e It, is "Time". Something I seem to be running out of lately. I used coffee & clock stamps to create this tag. Brown, copper & black inks are used. It is hard for me to create without using Tim Holtz's distressed inks, love them. Thanks for looking & comments are always welcome.
